Great singing, Disappointing, Confusing, Entertaining

See it if you want to hear great songs sung from talented people.

Don't see it if I wouldn't recommend this to anyone other than the singing portion of it. Need to be reworked, storyline is very confusing.

Overrated, Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if you feel like you need to because you are a huge fan of the movie. It's my favorite movie and I was underwhelmed. Vivian's was well casted.
